3 Days To Kill.

3 days to kill

Kevin Costner is an actor I never tire of seeing. So, when I saw the ads in the papers that he was the star in this movie, I decided to go and go I did this morning for the most convenient show for me, among all the timings, 9.30 am. My ever ready to go to movies friend joined me and we were just in time to catch it right from the beginning.

This is primarily an action movie. Not the kind of action movie that you would associate with Kevin Costner, but more like say Matt Damon. But Kevin brings all his histrionic skills to the role which show cases his ability to handle mindless action, romance, humour and an amazing performance as a father trying to establish a connection with his teen aged daughter.

All the other roles pale before his but that is to be expected in a film like this but the performance of Hailee Steinfield as the daughter is remarkable as well.

If you like action movies and Kevin Costner, this is a movie worth going to. [rating=4]

John, I have not forgotten, I did combine it with some food! We had a sizzler lunch afterwards.

    I like Costner too ( Robin Hood , Bodyguard , JFK , Waterworld … ) . Will watch out for this . Long time no see movie in Cinema ..missing the popcorn !

  2. I’m a big Costner fan – as long as he isn’t making some political or PC statement like Dances With Wolves which I though was terrible. He is an excellent action star and one of if not the best actor as athlete choices. He has made 3 excellent baseball flicks and Tin Cup even made golf fun. If you want to see a young Costner check out Silverado – a fun reboot of the western when westerns were not being made. His energy was amazing. Aso – a bit of trivia – what was his part in The Big Chill???

    • I read a lot of reviews when Bull Durham came to Pune but could not relate to it because of the baseball orientation. There is no baseball in India. We are cricket mad.

    Look forward to seeing it. Actually have not heard anything about it myself. As far as my favorite Costner movies, there have been three…

    Field of Dreams
    Dances with Wolves
    The Postman

  5. I’m clearly not much of a movie fan. I saw Dances With Wolves years ago and more recently Field of Dreams. But that’s about it for Costner.

  6. I like some action movies as long as they aren’t too violent. And I like Kevin Costner okay. Not so much in Dances with Wolves, though.
